The most recent incident was reported last night at 8:27 p.m., police say, with multiple gunshots heard in the area of Leavenworth and McAllister streets in San Francisco. SFPD units responded but did not locate anyone who was wounded, however, a silver four-door sedan suspected of involvement was seen leaving the area.
After police broadcast a description of the sedan, other SFPD units located a car matching the description near the intersection of First and Mission streets, so a chase ensued.
Police tried unsuccessfully to pull it over on the San Francisco Bay Bridge, and a handgun was tossed out the window, which was recovered, an officer said.
The pursuit was terminated and the sedan was last seen in the area of Market and West Grand streets in Oakland, however, a vehicle matching the description was reported involved in a single-car accident in the area of West Grand and West streets.
SFPD officers arrived and located three suspects near the car, two men and one woman. Another suspect was located in the area of 22nd and Curtis Streets.
All four suspects were arrested and taken into custody, according to SFPD Officer Tracy Turner.
Jesus Campos, 24, of San Lorenzo is charged with assault with a firearm, carrying a concealed weapon and possession of stolen property.
